Throwing Snow

YouTube Sessions: Throwing Snow

As you may have worked out by now, we like Throwing Snow. Even in the time since we last checked in with Ross Tones, there has been plenty to talk about. Tones had a stern tug at the heartstrings late last year with the beautiful ‘Aspera’ EP and has since announced a full album deal with fabric’s new Houndstooth venture. He recently supported the Thom Yorke-fronted Atoms for Peace in London and will be packing up his live show and hitting the road on tour with Bonobo throughout Europe in May and June. So a pretty good start to the year you’d probably agree.

In the countdown to his performance at Hyponik’s showcase in the Pirin Mountains at this years Horizon Festival ThroSno does a spot of online musing for us. This weeks agenda consists of the Warsaw Village Band, the Rizla spinning trick, the science behind waves and a load of other really cool shit.
